Ok...we told you yesterday who would be on the cover of this year's Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition: That sweet li'l Kate Upton. (Have you ever seen a smaller bikini? Yikes!) Now, for the other stuff...the models, the swimsuit labels, etc.
There were a few swimsuit labels that really stood out. We have carried most of the brands at one time, or another. Currently we have Tori Praver Swimwear. They had several swimsuits featured in SI Swim. The Lily Cage Bandeau, the Shyla Bikini and a few others that I wasn't familiar with, but my, they were sure lookin' good on the pages.
L*Space made their mark in SI with a version of their Fringe Bikini Top in Lime Green . Gotta expect that...fringe is just so sexy!
I was so glad to see Tyler Rose Swimwear make the pages. Although, due to budget limits, we are not currently carrying this brand, we do love it. They had quite a few swimsuits featured. Anne V modeled a purple bottom with braided sides (sans top.)
Salinas Swimwear made the cut again, this year. We are still searching through the online images to find out just which bikinis were featured. AH! found it! It's a B&W bikini. we don't carry that print, but we do have the same Salinas style.
Other labels I see recognized: Karla Colletto did a colorblock scuba number, Cia.Maritima delivered with a purple croc bikini, Acacia Swimwear did a red and black version of one of their swimsuits. There's more...I'm just too tired to look through it. I'll post again on this subject soon. Love to all!!!
